One of the best-kept secrets of WWII was the existence of America’s “Ghost Army.” The mission of this 1100-man unit was battlefield deception, misdirecting the German military by utilizing life-like inflatable rubber tanks and trucks, fake radio transmissions, simulated airfields and planes, and recorded sounds of huge armies on the march.
